The Thorndale Bulldogs baseball team is now 18-4 on the season and remains undefeated in District 27-2A play. 

Thorndale has claimed the league title and already knows its first round opponent for the state playoffs.  They will play Ganado in bi-district action starting at 7:30 p.m. May 5 in a best-of-three series.  The games will be played over May 5-6 at Texas Lutheran University in Seguin.  Game two is set for 4 p.m. on May 6 and game three, if needed, would follow 30 minutes after the completion of game two.

The Bulldogs defeated Bremond 10-0 on the road Tuesday night, with pitcher Ashton Albert tossing the shut out in the run-ruled game.

Albert allowed just two hits by the Tigers on the night.  He did five innings worth of work, striking out one.

Thorndale batters collected 10 hits in the game.

Coleby Driver led the Bulldog effort, going three-for-three in the contest.

Thorndale also run-ruled Holland on Saturday, defeating the Hornets 11-1 in six innings.

Holland had an early 1-0 lead, but the Bulldogs were able to knot things up on an RBI single by Ryan Biar with two outs in the bottom of the third.

In the bottom of the fifth the Bulldogs put up nine runs and blew the game open.  A triple by Scott Guzman in that inning helped the big run push.

 Logan Fisher earned the win for Thorndale, tossing six innings, surrendering one run, one hit and striking out three.

Guzman and Lane Niemtschk both connected for two hits.  The Bulldog team collected seven hits on the day.

The Bulldog will finish out their league and regular season on Friday against Thrall.
